Donations will go towards The Invisible Wound Project's Mentorship Program.
Funds will cover the cost of activities for the matches, such as admission to the Louisville Zoo, the Kentucky Science Center, and the Muhammad Ali Center, so that expenses which make the most of a mentorship experience do not come out-of-pocket. This is often an obstacle that many interested mentors face, especially college students, so we are looking to remove that barrier.
In addition, received support will go towards the hosting of events, the publishing of literature, and much more.
Further information on our Mentorship Program is available on our website's link at the bottom of the page.
What we do.
The Invisible Wound Project is a student-governed, volunteer-based, and Louisville-born nonprofit organization that brings students to the fight against childhood toxic stress.
How we do.
Promoting awareness of toxic stress and of helpful resources through community outreach and general advocacy.
Fostering resilient companionship through a one-on-one mentorship program in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Publishing relevant literature that makes known facts, stories, and paths to prevention.
Why we do.
First... came its three soon-to-be co-founders, each arriving two hours late to U of L's Freshman Orientation. After coincidentally crossing paths in the parking lot while walking to orientation, the unexpected relationship began to form.
Then... came the connecting interests. Due to that afternoon's circumstances, two of the three co-founders were placed in the same dorm that evening, which created the perfect environment for discussion. Come nighttime, the temporary roommates talked for hours into the night about any and every topic that arose, eventually reaching those of psychology, social work, and the common good.
Finally... the remaining co-founder reconnected that next morning, and all three agreed to reconvene in one week. Following a few more gatherings, the idea of founding a non-profit not only satisfied the shared interest of social enterprise, but propelled them into a year and beyond filled with all that makes up creating something out of nothing.
